I was invited by DEN to write a blog about my research on digital heritage. I wrote my first guest blog with Karol J. Borowiecki on our working paper on digital heritage and innovation in Europe. The blog can be read here, and the working paper is available here.
Among key results, we find that innovation is driven by digital literacy, both in producers and in consumers, but also by slack, or the resources left after covering all regular costs. That is, the European archives, libraries and museums that have enough resources to do their work and then go on holiday are able to come up with new innovative ways to bring their services to an increasingly digital consumer.
